Last one!


We are in beautiful Long Beach, Washington for a couple of days. We are here for the Washington State International Kite Festival. We are staying at the Coastal Inn and Suites. Our room is called the Captain's Quarters and is huge and beautiful. The only shock was there is no air-conditioner in the room. :-) We were able to open the large windows and keep it cool. We rode down the outstanding beach and watched some of the kites today, we will be returning to the beach for more tomorrow before driving back home. 

The Washington State International Kite Festival (WSIKF) is a week-long kite celebration and competition held annually during the third full week of August. Starting on Monday and ending on Sunday this Long Beach, Washington State vacation extravaganza boasts skies ablaze with color, high flying action,  and choreographed movement. Washington’s Kite Festival draws famous kite fliers from all around the world, and tens of thousands awed spectators, many of which participate in the fun with their own kite flying adventures. This has almost made Jerry and I go shopping for kites. :-) It was outstanding, I took so many pictures I  will have to sort through and decide which ones make it to the update. It was an awesome couple of days in Long Beach, check back later for more.
